This is a very early 1904/5 Steiff 20" Apricot mohair Teddy Bear with his blank button in his ear. He is loved and has mohair loss to his chest but is a great bear. All his joints work well and his wool felt pads are in great shape with only a few small holes to a few pads. He has had a repair to the back of one arm about one inch long and there has been some darned repairs to his muzzle and chest. None of this makes him fragile and certainly does not detract from the wonderful apricot mohair colour/ He has his original boot button eyes and he comes in his sailor top. A stunning bear.
